Nobody messes with Howard Rich...


...nobody. From the AP's "Board doesn't approve lawsuit help for ethics watchdog agency":

The state Ethics Commission isn't finding help from the state in its legal fight with a group it says spent money to influence voters before last week's primary.

On May 30, South Carolinians for Responsible Government, a group pushing tax breaks for parents who send their children to private school, sued the commission in federal court, saying its free speech rights are under attack.

The commission asked Attorney General Henry McMaster to defend the case, but he declined with no explanation. Then on Wednesday, the Budget and Control Board couldn't get a unanimous vote needed to approve money for legal help because state Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom objected.
